Marissa Meyer Book Tag

Image
  Today, I've got a unique tag about a favourite author of mine! I've enjoyed reading her books so much, even if they are intimidating by their huge sizes. The questions are so awesome and I can't wait to answer them.     But first, here's the rules: List the rules. (Doing) Answer the questions provided in the tag. (I will) Use the provided tag image. (This one ^) Link to the creator (Diamond of  I have 12% of a plan ) Provide a bank set of questions for anyone who wants to complete this! There are no nominations for this tag. (Thank you, nominating is hard) And now for the questions! 1. How many Marissa Meyer books do you own? None. 😱 I know that's horrifying, but I am fixing that one day. I only found her since the end of 2019 and I love burrowing books from the library (cause you don't have to wait, and if you don't like a book, you can just return it without wasting money or a copy of it).    2.  Have you read all of the Marissa Meyer Books? No. I have

Christian Topics: Living Faith

I plan this to be a series. I have two other topics on my mind so far. I meant to write this ages ago but just didn't get there. Also, I just didn't have the right words to explain the topic. I found it in the book of James, which I will cover in a little while. This was first prompted by a conversation in a bible study one night when I and another girl were talking about faith. Then I got this sort of revelation. Faith is meant to be living with Christ daily. We shouldn't just have faith. Faith isn't meant to be that way. Faith is meant to be active.  I always knew that as a Christian, my faith should show. But I didn't understand the deep meaning of living faith until that night. We should walk with faith, talk with faith, every single action we do should be with faith. Now, I know this is not the first time we heard this before. I know I haven't. Sometimes, though, the very simple things are the ones we don't understand completely. I didn't realise t

Know the Novel - Part One: Introduction {A Writers Linkup}

Image
Today, I'm joining in the linkup, Know the Novel , hosted by  Christine Smith . It is directed at those who are doing NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), but you don't have to be doing that to do the linkup (I am one of those people). It is in three parts. So expect another in November and in December. So, I am going to use my current WIP, Our Scattered Ashes. Since I am working on that one the most right now. And onto the amazing questions: 1. What first sparked the idea for this novel? Well, it all started when I had an image of my protagonist, from my first novel, as a cyborg soldier. He was running around in snowy woods, possibly scouting for any threat. Everything kicked off from there. 2.  Share a blurb (or just an overall summary if you'd prefer)! This reminds me I should update the blurb on the blog. Things have changed. But the main idea is still the same. Which is... A young cyborg male has his purpose stripped away when the war ends. Not only that, but his

Sunshine Blogger Award 2

  Okay, I know that I don't need to do this tag since I've done it before, but the questions won me over. You'll see what I mean in a minute. The rules: Thank the blogger who nominated you. (Or the person who let you steal it. 😂 Thanks  R.M. Archer ) Display your award. (Done!) Answer the questions you were asked. Nominate 5 bloggers. (Nope) Ask 6 questions. (Fine) Let your nominees know they were nominated. (Okay, I will 😉) The questions: 1. What's your favourite character trope? I don't know if this is my top favourite, but I love villains with redemptive arcs. To me, it shows that villains are humans just as much as the heroes and it makes their stories much more powerful. Also, they make you relate to villains in a way you hadn't before. There is something so satisfying in seeing a villain getting redemption.      2. What's your least favourite character trope? The chosen one. I am tired of stories where the protagonist is the most special of them all

Marvel Readathon Update

 Here's an update on what happened with the Marvel Readathon.                          Picture credited to Diamond  Well, I read only three books during September, one of which I didn't finished until October, but read enough of it to be included with the overall results. The first book I finished was The Memory Thief.   I started it on September 2nd and finished it on the 14th. It was so good. 5 stars. If I had more time on my hands to read it, I would've finished it sooner. One day I will write a review of it here, ranting all about its goodness. (I recommend reading it if you haven't) The prompts it fulfilled: 9#, 10#, 13#, 15# The second book I finished was Renegades. I started it on September 15th and finished it on the 22th.  This book was a monster to read (but what I can expect from Marissa Meyer?), but it was so worth it. It was awesome. Another 5 stars. I can't wait to read the next book in the series! (I also recommend this) The prompts it fulfilled: 1#,
